A little background. I recently acquired a MultiCam M3000 router that had been in a fire. Unfortunately the router sat in the building for about 4 months after the fire before i got it. The spindle is an Umbragroup 8HP air cooled with ATC. The spindle is a bit sticky after it sets a while and is a little noisier than I like when it does turn. I've been slowly disassembling it and making some progress. There seems to be about zero information on dis assembly of any spindles out on the internet. I'm convinced the bearing on the business end of the spindle has some debris in it as it has recently seized. I figure I have nothing to loose by trying. Any input would be appreciated.
